about

With his debut EP "Fear of Perdition", Nick Nash weaves profoundly honest lyrics with simple song structures to create relatable melodies which reflect the inner transitions from the darkness of doubt to the clarity of self-redemption. Rout with the rough edges of a mountain high-desert upbringing, with the grit of rural working class blood, founded in a hope of something larger than self, burdened with uncertainty that is exaggerated by imperfection, with yearning for familiarity, and smoothed with distance from mistakes of prior generations, "Fear of Perdition" is as complex as it is simple.

Track Name: Right and Wrong
You had it in your head what you wanted me to be
Knowin’ full well I was none of those things
You said you were in love but you could never marry a man like me
You said it was your dad and Jesus Christ who told you it was that way

Honey you were right, right about me
I ain’t ever gonna be, the things that you want me to be
And honey I tried, and failed
It’s a damn good thing I did anyhow

Cause Honey you were wrong, wrong about me
I made something of those shambles I used to be
And I found somethin’ inside of me
Someone who sees in me
All the things I’m thankful you could never see

I went from sinner to saint and then you wouldn’t let me in
You said that you were afraid you’d never see the devil again
You said it was about you and not about what I believe
I think you loved the idea but don’t think you loved me

Honey you were right, right about me
I ain’t ever gonna be, the things that you want me to be
And honey I tried, and failed
It’s a damn good thing I did anyhow

Cause Honey you were wrong, wrong about me
I am happy how I am; don’t miss how I used to be
And I found somethin’ inside of me
And someone who sees in me
All the things I’m thankful you could never see
All the things I’m thankful you could never see
Honey you were right but wrong about me
Honey you were right but wrong about me
Track Name: Fear of Perdition
As sure as a preacher says hell holds the damned, holds the damned
I’m gonna make, I’m gonna make a mistake again

Fallin’ from grace can be slow but it ain’t soft
The fear of perdition is what’s keepin’ me hangin’ on
And I was taught that there’s love, duty, and fear
And I want love, but the fear of perdition is keepin’ me here

And when the devil calls me back with open hands
Into that darkness where I have been
I won’t go back, and that’s a fact, I won’t go back
I won’t go back, but I don’t think I’m a saint for that

I’m just a man, imperfect man
I’m doing the best, best I can
As sure as the bible don’t say that hell holds the damned
I’m gonna make, I’m gonna make a mistake again

And when the devil calls me back with open hands
Into that darkness where I have been
Into that confusion that left me without a path
Into that fog that left me askin’ when, why, and how
I won’t go back, and that’s a fact, I won’t go back
I won’t go back but I don’t think I’m a saint for that

I’m just a man, imperfect man
I’m doing the best, best I can
As sure as the bible don’t say that hell holds the damned
I’m gonna make, I’m gonna make a mistake again

And fallin’ from grace can be slow but it ain’t soft
The fear of perdition is what’s keepin’ me hangin’ on
And I was taught that there is love, duty, and fear
And I want love, but the fear of perdition is keepin’ me here
Track Name: If I Get Lost
When I broke like a dam holdin’ water from spring
Comin’ down from those mountains every May

Everyone left me for higher ground
But you waited for those waters to go down

If I ever get lost, honey wait for me
In my head or in the wilderness, wherever it may be
I’ll come back, I’ll come back, I’ll come back, honey wait and see
I’ll come back, I’ll come back, I’ll be there like you were for me

When I got lost in the darkest of caves, everyone turned their lights off and left me for dead
When I woke up in the worst of ways, I looked up and I saw, one light waiting for me
When I got trapped in the halls of my head, you showed me doors, I thought were walls all of these years
When I felt the heat leave from my hands, I lay waitin’ to pass until, until you found me there.

If I ever get lost, honey wait for me
In my head or in the wilderness, wherever it may be
I’ll come back, I’ll come back, I’ll come back, honey wait and see
I’ll come back, I’ll come back, I’ll be there like you were for me

Since I had you, I haven’t needed a thing
Even when its all burnin’, breakin’, fallin’ down
When I’ve got no one and I’ve got no where to turn
No matter what I think, you keep me here, you keep me here

If I ever get lost, honey wait for me
In my head or in the wilderness, wherever it may be
I’ll come back, I’ll come back, I’ll come back, honey wait and see
I’ll come back, I’ll come back, I’ll come back honey wait for me
Track Name: Where We Stand
Tryin’ to find out where we stand
But it’s hard when I don’t know where I’ve been
Fallin’ asleep then I’m waking up again, oh Lord
Tryin’ to find out where we stand

When we were young, we had it in our hands
In our power to put it out of our heads
But now time is runnin’ out

And honey soon, it’ll all be gone
Honey soon, it’ll all be gone

Lets love, while we can
Focus on my eyes not on the past

We’ve spent far too long lookin’ back
Spent far to long trying to change the past

We can let it all go, let it all go to hell
Or move on slow, honey make it right from here

Tryin’ to find out where we stand
It’s hard as hell when I just don’t understand
Honey where you’ve been, darling how you feel
All I know, is we need to make amends

Honey soon, it’ll all be gone
Honey soon, it’ll all be gone

Lets love, while we can
Focus on my eyes not on the past

Lets love, while we can
I know there’s fear, just take my hand

Lets love, while we can
Focus on my eyes not on the past

Lets love, while we can
I know there’s fear, just take my hand

We’ve spent far too long lookin’ back
Spent far to long trying to change the past
Track Name: Fear of Me
All my life, I’ve been lookin’ for what it is I’m afraid of
And I found darkness, I found demons in those dark woods
And I found God, I found Satan, all the same
I found the night and I found the light of day

Layin’ awake in my safe walls, I feel like their caving in
With nothing but the thunder my heart makes in my ears
And all along, I was looking out
I was looking out, I looked to you, I looked to death, I looked to them

Lookin’ in the mirror and I see fear
I ain’t afraid of nothin’ but what’s standin there
And I ain’t afraid of what I am but what I might be
And knowin’ it’s a fear of me is gonna calm my heart hopefully

Take it all away, everyone, and everything that I have
But I’ll still have fear, as long as I’m here

A fear of going to my grave with nothin’ but the gold in my teeth
A fear of leaving my loves with nothin’ but bad memories
A fear of doing the devil’s work, on a righteous call
The fear of doing nothin’ but takin’, takin’ from this home

Lookin’ in the mirror and I see fear
I ain’t afraid of nothin’ but what’s standin’ there

And I ain't afraid of what I am but what I might be
Knowin’ it’s a fear of me, is gonna calm my heart hopefully
And knowin’ it’s a fear of me, is gonna calm my heart hopefully
Track Name: Take Me Home
I ain’t much on death so you can keep your crucifix
I don’t know what you know, hell I don’t think I ever will
Where I’m from, it’s about love not your politics
I ain’t ever seen a silver spoon; don’t give a shit what your daddy did

Take me back to where I’m from
Where I always wanted to get out of
And the thing I’m startin’ to see
Didn’t know what I had till it was gone from me

And give me pines over plains, give me snow over rain
Give me a Jesus that I know, not the one you say I never will
Give me the ignorant working saints, not the enlightened rich with their fame

Take me home, Lord take me home

I ain’t got a drop of blue blood, no Ivy League heritage
The rings on my hands give me away as a son from the land nobody wanted
But I’d take my humble roots over eyes that just can’t see
Trust is what I build my love on, not where I get my money

Take me back to where I’m from
Where I always wanted to get out of
I don’t mean to bitch and moan
All I know, is I don’t belong

And give me pines over plains, give me snow over rain
Give me a Jesus that I know, not the one you say I never will
Give me those open judges on a hill, not those blessings from your pretty hissin’ lips

Take me home, take me home
And take me home, take me home
